    How is The Fortune Cookie Chronicles Related to Richard Price’s Lush Life?

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | April 6, 2009

    So someone emailed me today to let me know that Richard Price’s Lush Life had been recommended to them because they had purchased The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. Here is the screen shot

    Amazon Recommends Lush Life Based on The Fortune Cookie Chronicles

    I read Lush Life in part because it is loosely related to the murder of Nicole DuFresne, which is a story I was a reporter on. So I was particularly intrigued by the book because there were definitely scenes that I had witnessed firsthand (like the funeral scene).

    My guess about why it was recommended (though I’m sure it is wrong). He has bunch of Chinese restaurant workers in his book, as do I.
